Agra university receives only 8 applications for GST course
Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar University has received only eight applications for Goods and Services Tax (GST) course this year. The total number of seats in this certificate course is 50. The job oriented course was started in 2017 with an aim to produce trained GST practitioners. Due to irregular classes and mismanagement, students lost interest in the course.
After roll out of GST by the Central government, university administration, on November 10, started the course for the duration of six months. Agra university was the first university to start this unique certificate course on the new tax regime. The course is an initiative to address confusions surrounding accounting of GST.
The first batch received good response and over 100 applications surfaced for 50 seats. However, the inability of the university administration to determine the course curriculum in the first three months led to the decrease in the number of applications.
This year, the university administration accepted applications for admission till May 31. The application process continued for a month. Compared to the total number of seats, not even one fourth applications were received.
University public relation officer, GS Sharma, said, “There has been lack of awareness about the course. The university administration will publicize and enroll more students. The main aim behind starting the GST course is to develop professionals of high caliber who can facilitate good business practices.”
He said, “Curriculum of the GST course has been structured focusing on practical application rather than going deep into the economic theory. Senior professors, officials of Central GST and chartered accountants will be taking classes on a regular basis. Apart from commerce students, the course can be of significant help to businessmen, traders and corporate professionals.”
